We stayed there just for a night as a starting point of our safari.The Hotel is excellent. The Room offered to us had a very good view of the city. The location is relatively near to Giraffe center, Bomos of Kenya & Carnivor restaurant. The breakfast was included in our price and it had a very good spread. The food... More

Given the close proximity to the Central business district of Nairobi yet a safe enough distance from the noisy city, this is a perfect choice for holding conferences and workshops. My experience has been that most foreigners find it quite easy to access from town and the fact that they can walk to the BCD to shop around and enjoy... More

The Panafric is nicely located for a business meeting that one would want to have in a city / out of city environment. Staff are friendly, food is good and their facility is also good I would recommend for the business traveller

Awesome service, everybody is very kind and willing to help. The restaurant prepares exquisite dishes although it's pretty expensive. Rooms are comfortable. Walking distance to museums and city center make it a good place to stay.

I stayed here for a few nights after a safari and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was very nice in the Flame Tree restaurant, you could have absolutely anything you could imagine for breakfast.

This was my first experience traveling in Africa, and as an American I had no idea what to expect. But I was definitely pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We stayed here 2 nights, but not consecutively - one at the beginning and the other at the end of our travels. We were greeted warmly and helped with our bags. The... More

We stayed here for one night only before departing on our Safari to the Maasai. It suited our needs perfectly, a very friendly welcome late one afternoon, a quick wash and change and then dinner. Dinner was gorgeous with very attentive service and good prices. We slept soundly before departing early the next morning for Wilson airport. Breakfast was provided... More

What captures my attention in this hotel is traveler-friendly accommodation rates and friendly staff. Just a distance away from but good for city views and shopping. It is strategically located for peaceful but urban stay.

We stayed at the Panafric after a week on safari. This was a good base in Nairobi with strong security on the approach to the hotel. The accommodation is perfectly acceptable but nothing to write home about. On the other hand, the friendly staff together with the excellent food make for a memorable visit. I would have to rate the... More
